(Newser) – As surely as the leaves are changing their color and children are returning to school, the summer of Hiddleswift is over. People reports Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift have broken up after just three months of dating. But what a three months it was. They made the internet squee in June with photos of themselves as a couple, met each others' parents, made out in Italy, celebrated the birth of America, and had to deny their relationship wasn't a publicity stunt.

While a source tells People the breakup was "amicable," the Huffington Post reports Swift had "concerns over their public image." "Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with," a source tells Us Weekly. "Taylor knew the backlash that comes with public displays of affection, but Tom didn't listen to her concerns when she brought them up." And just like that it feels like the cold bleakness of winter is approaching faster than ever. (Read more Taylor Swift stories.)
